Huckabee’s Thinking
Posted by: Dale Franks on Saturday, February 23, 2008

For the past few weeks, Bruce and I have been asking what it is that Mike Huckabee thinks he is accomplishing by staying in the Republican nomination race. Well,now we know.
In an interview with 1200 WOAI news during his swing through Texas, longshot Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee outlined a strategy which has him not winning the GOP nomination outright, but pushing the nomination to the September Republican National Convention, which he says will turn to him as the most ‘conservative alternative.’
John McCain, however, only needs 100 more delegates to secure the nomination on the first ballot. That means, of the 600 or so remaining delegates, Huckabee has to take more than 500 of them to deny McCain a first-ballot nomination.

If he's saying he can do that, well, that's just crazy talk.

Huckabee is trying to revise history to make himself look like the runner up instead of Romney for next Republican Primary that’s open. That could be in 4, 8, or 12 years. People’s memories are bad and he’ll come in waving his delegate count and get a great start. If it happens he undermines McCain’s chances, it makes his next run be in 4 years.

As long as his campaign funds are holding nearly constant or in the plus column, he has no reason to stop for himself.
